We hope and pray to you Lord for:
Health, happiness, and helpful hugs,
Open-mindedness, open hearts and openness,
Peace, patience and politeness,
Enthusiasm and energy in your love!
We hope and pray in your goodness Lord!

Grade 1, St. Paul on the Lake

Lord, please give me hope,
When I know not how to cope,
With the hard time I go through.
Please help me to find this strength in you,
And help me to feel it in everything I do.
I know to get to heaven I will need hope every day,
And will need to have it in everything that I say.
Help me to have hope in everything that I do,
If I’m at school, at home, or praying to you.
Hope is special, and can be hard to find,
But please grant me hope in my body and mind.
